Gynecomastia (the overgrowth of breast tissue in males) can usually be treated successfully with surgery. However, when gynecomastia surgery is performed by an inexperienced surgeon, the results may be unsatisfactory. In these cases, revision surgery may be used to correct errors and achieve the results you originally wanted.
Are You Disappointed or Unhappy with Your Gynecomastia Surgery Results?
While gynecomastia surgery is a fairly straightforward procedure, many factors are involved and it is important to seek the help of an accomplished and experienced surgeon.
